Lately I’ve been very conscious that my 36th birthday is fast approaching and I will be closer to 40 than 30. It’s led to discussions with my mum about a bucket list but I’ve been delaying putting pen to paper and writing one out.
And then I came across a post in my travels through WordPress which has inspired me to write one simply for 2014.
Recently I came across a blog that talked about writing up your intentions for the following year and keeping them in an intention box. Considering the success I’ve been having with intentions I thought it was a pretty good idea so I mentioned it to my girlfriend, Emma, who said she’s been reading about Vision Boards.
The intention box was completely forgotten. Why would I want to keep my desires hidden away in a box anyway?
Recently I started setting an intention for my day first thing in the morning while I have a shower. I don’t really know how or why it started, it’s been rather instinctive, but it feels really good, like I’m positively influencing the way in which my day will unfold.
Perhaps the experience of my day is unavoidably coloured by the intention, a kind of self-fulfilling prophecy, I don’t know. But I do know that it has been having an impact and not necessarily in the way I intended.
